Two Great Guitars is a studio album by Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry, released in August 1964 by Checker Records, a subsidiary of Chess Records. It is considered one of the earliest "super session" albums of rock music. The two men were friends, and both recorded for Chess. The album consists of two lengthy spontaneous instrumental jams plus a couple of recently recorded instrumentals by the two guitarists (additional instrumental recordings, three by Diddley and one by Berry, are included in the CD reissue). The album cover shows a Gibson ES-350T owned by Berry and a guitar created by Diddley.
